Venezuela deports six suspects on Interpol 'Red List'

CARACAS - Venezuela, long accused by the United States of being lax in the fight against drugs, deported six "highly dangerous" suspects on Monday and said the move showed its commitment to combating organized crime.
In a sign of the expanding reach of Mexico's drug cartels, one of the six suspects is accused of being a member of the brutal "Los Zetas" group.
"These actions demonstrate the commitment of the government, its cooperation and responsibility in the frontal assault on drug trafficking, terrorism and organized crime," the CICPC national investigative police said in a statement.
